Modern US heavy hitters Trivium are excited to announce their return to the UK and Europe in Spring 2018. This will be the Florida band’s first visit since the October release of their blistering eighth album, The Sin and The Sentence (review here).
Presented by Metal Hammer, ‘The Sin and The Sentence Tour’ kicks off in Köln on March 11, and pile-drives across Europe, wrapping up in the UK on April 21 at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. Trivium will be joined by special guests Code Orange (UK only), Power Trip (all dates) and Venom Prison (all dates).
It’s time to bring The Sin and The Sentence to the UK and Europe! One of the greatest things about headlining a tour is picking the bands to round out the bill. Code Orange, Power Trip, and Venom Prison are not only the leading edge of the next wave of great metal acts, they are also three of our personal favourites. We are going to dive deep into our back catalogue to pair up the new tunes with some older classics and a few rarities we haven’t played in a long time. See you all very soon!
Upon release, Trivium’s The Sin and The Sentence clinched the top spot on both Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and the Hard Rock Albums chart (their second #1). Globally, the record made a stellar impact too, arriving Top 5 in Canada and Australia while cracking the Top 20 in the UK and Germany, scoring some of the band’s highest chart positions to date.
Uncompromising Pittsburgh natives Code Orange continue their meteoric rise, recently gracing the front covers of both Kerrang! and Revolver magazines. The no-holds-barred band have been converting new fans across North America this Summer, in support of ground-breaking current album, Forever. The group will play directly before Trivium each night in the UK.
Texan thrash band Power Trip are sure to be performing choice cuts from their widely praised, second album, Nightmare Logic. Power Trip tell us:
We’re honoured to come to Europe for our fifth time, especially with such a massive band as Trivium. We’re excited to watch and learn from Trivium and hang out with our mates in Venom Prison. The end of the tour has Code Orange joining the package; it’ll be good to play with those lunatics again. That’s it. That’s all. Don’t fuck up and miss this tour.
Hardcore death metal five-piece Venom Prison will open proceedings each night. The hotly-tipped UK act have had a whirlwind twelve months since putting out debut full-length Animus, including winning a Metal Hammer Golden God Award for “Best Newcomer”. Venom Prison enthuse:
Trivium have been at the forefront of heavy music for over a decade and being asked to join such an incredible line up is an honour. We can go from big stages to house shows and are ready to annihilate them all. The scale of this tour is going be a new experience for us and we are grateful for this opportunity!
